Great customer engagement takes planning. Just like travelers about to embark on a road trip, it’s important for brands to take the time to imagine and plot out what a full customer journey looks like for your customers. One great way to do that effectively? Braze Canvas.

Canvas is a Braze tool that allows brands to build, test, and optimize message flows on multiple channels so they can create the most valuable, memorable customer journeys possible. Let’s take a look at a couple brands that utilized Canvas to plan the perfect “road trip” for their users.

Overcoming Obstacles With HappyFresh

An online grocery delivery platform based in Jakarta, HappyFresh was facing a unique problem. With COVID-19 pushing all customers to online-only experiences, HappyFresh found that a shortage of delivery slots was leading some shoppers to abandon orders. Luckily, they quickly solved the problem by leveraging Braze.

HappyFresh created a custom HTML in-app message (IAM) to be triggered at the moment when most shoppers dropped off and implemented it using Canvas. This IAM gave the customer the opportunity to opt-in for delivery slot updates via push notifications and email. During the three weeks HappyFresh ran this Canvas, the IAM achieved a 43% opt-in rate and a 33% purchase rate following email and push notifications.

Wallapop Found Creative Solutions

Wallapop, an online secondhand marketplace based in Barcelona, was facing a different set of consequences from COVID-19. Centered on face-to-face reselling, Wallapop had to decide quickly how to keep customers engaged in the face of the shutdown. So they created the Wallachallenge.

The Wallachallenge presented users with one challenge per week for five weeks, assigning a task on a landing page (listing products, favoriting items, etc.) that would reward a prize once completed. To support this major effort, Wallapop leveraged Braze Canvas to orchestrate and send push notifications and IAM to individuals who fell into different segments (active, new, or had not opened the app in 15 days), with the goal of providing a cohesive, fun experience capable of nudging them to get more engaged.

The challenge was a resounding success: Users who received messages as part of the Wallachallenge carried out 235% more chats and made 227% more listings on the app. Overall, Wallapop saw a 31% rise in users per month during the Wallachallenge, boosting their business results in a very challenging landscape..

Final Thoughts

Whether as a way to seamlessly navigate through new challenges, or a desire to make an impact in the digital sphere, these brands designed an unforgettable journey for their users. Creating memorable experiences along a customer journey is what Braze is all about, and Canvas is a perfect tool to do so.
